Owls in my backyard!

Owl Babies

Did you know there are a lot of owls that live in Bay Village? I had an amazing experience with an owl family in my backyard. Last year for Mother's Day we got my mom an owl box. For a year just squirrels were living in it until one day we saw a feathery head peeking out. It was a screech owl!

We soon realized there were two babies, a mom and a dad. They stayed in the box for about five weeks and began to move out of the owl box to nearby branches. Around 8:30 p.m. every night the owls would start their "flying lessons." 

We could watch them practice flying from branch to branch. In the morning we love to find the owls and they are always on a different branch in our yard. It has been so fun watching them grow and learning about screech owls.

I love owls!
